Getting out PAWS certificates

Well done to all of the boys and girls that completed their PAWS water safety training and received their certificates this year.

The whole school learned all about water safety.

Here are some pictures of some of the pupils in the school that got their certificates.

Fighting words with Room 12

Room 12 were very lucky to be invited to a Fighting Words workshop. This workshop was set up by the author Roddy Doyle. Everyone wrote a story together and created characters. Illustrators, editors and publishers were on hand to help. It was a fantastic day!

Mothers Day celebrations in Room 11

Room 11 designed unique Mother’s Day cards for their mothers, grandmothers, aunts or any other special person in their lives who  helps to takes care of them. They wanted to show them just how thankful they are.

Learning about healthy teeth in Room 1

Room 11 discovered the effects of different drinks on our teeth. We used hard boiled eggs for the experiment as we learned that they have the same enamel as in our teeth. We put one in water to use as our control (to compare it to), one in Coke and one in apple juice. We were surprised to see the apple juice was the most disgusting! It was great fun.

Static electricity in Room 11

Room 11 have been learning about static electricity. We rubbed the balloon in the same direction on our jumper or leg and the static electricity created was able to pick up small pieces of paper and even our hair!

High jump practice with Mr. Coghlan

Today Room 15 did some high jump practice with Mr. Coghlan in Halla Cullen.

It was great to learn the technique and jump so high!

Thanks so much to Mr. Coghlan and the pupils from his class who helped out.

Electric workers in Room 15

Room 15 were learning all about electricity and circuits.

We learned about static and current electricity. We made simple circuits using wires, batteries and bulbs. 🙂

We learned all about Morse code and sent some coded messages to our friends!
